While the man will never be mistaken for Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly or even Michael Jackson, he has gained a following -- namely, members of the Port St. Lucie Police Department who want to bust him and his partner for theft.

The dancer was identified by police as Sean Gazo, 31, TCPalm.com reported.

Police said that on Feb. 11, an 86-year-old person hired Gazo and Carl Jackson, 42, to help move heavy furniture, the website reported.

“Shortly after they left, the victim noticed several pieces of jewelry missing worth approximately $10,000,” Port St. Lucie police said in a news release. “Detectives found that Gazo and Jackson pawned jewelry in a pawn store in Stuart.”

Detectives learned Gazo and Jackson had pawned the items in Stuart, about 10 miles south of the victim’s home, WPEC reported. The victim identified the jewelry as his, the television station reported.

In March, warrants were issued for Gazo and Jackson on charges including dealing in stolen property, false information to a pawnbroker and third-degree grand theft, TCPalm.com reported.

Both men remain at large, police said.
